Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Prime numbers that appear in the integer solutions {X(1),X(2),...X(n)} of Markoff-Hurwitz equation X(1)^2 + ... + X(n)^2 = a*X(1)*...*X(n) for a=1 and n=7.

7-tuples that are solutions of the above equation consisting only of primes appear to be very rare. In this special case the number N=X(1)*...*X(7) is equal to the sum of the squares of its prime factors (with multiplicity).

Giorgos Kalogeropoulos has found two numbers N having 123 and 163 digits respectively.

The factors of the first one are {2, 2, 2, 23, 1109123111, 57766182616657495290612267717977498812931942308391, 11788844704086155814066994795339207139099517865226893357415731}, so this 7-tuple is a solution and all these primes belong to the sequence. (See Rivera's link for the second 7-tuple).

EXAMPLE

{1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 23, 274} is a solution to the equation. So the primes 2,3,23 are terms of the sequence.
